PPC Renewables, a renewable energy arm of Public Power Corporation, has commissioned a wind farm on the western island of Kefalonia.

The wind farm, which was built by US company Ameresco and local company Res Invest, consists of four wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 9.2 MW. The project’s cost was 9.8 million euros and it will be operated under a 14-year guaranteed purchase agreement.

PPC Renewables CEO Konstantinos Mavros said that the wind farm near was built in record time, in just seven months. He added that the development of RES generation facilities will reduce the final cost of energy, opening a way to a completely new energy market with new technologies, such as hydrogen, which are expected to be developed in the near future.
